Finishing dolls and the art of procrastination!
I'm not alone in this I'm sure. Procrastination being a well practised skill that many possess. What dumbfounds me however is the ease with which it's practised over things that are supposedly enjoyed. Like finishing dolls for example. Anyway I shall ponder this further. Finally I have finished the red head, I must cut myself some slack being a beginner and all. She is my second airdry clay doll. I am so excited by all of her imperfections as now I know what not to do next time. I have a couple of heads on the go and will be doing a wire armature for the bodies of these with clay hands and feet.
This one has been alot of fun, I started making her for my mothers birthday - that was on the 3rd of September, she will be receiving it tomorrow - oops!! Better late than never hey! I loved dressing her up and revel in finally being able to find a use for all the magnificent but small pieces of silk I have collected over the years. Her shoes have been needle felted straight onto her feet. Brainwave by a friend as I was just going to paint them on - Thanks B. She is also holding a small needle felted heart.
So well done to me there are a couple more girls to have left the work table. On to the next volunteer.
